Seed: The Untold Story

November 29, 2016

Seed: The Untold Story is coming to Bozeman on Sunday, December 4 (event info below).

This renowned film looks into the complex history and current state of the world’s seed diversity. In the last century, 94% of the world’s seed varieties have disappeared. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, farmers, scientists, lawyers and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food.

In a harrowing and heartening story, these reluctant heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds. The film features interviews with Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke, Raj Patel and more. 

Since the film’s world premiere earlier this year at the DC Environmental Film Festival, Seed: The Untold Story has screened at over 30 international film festivals, winning eight awards and receiving widespread critical acclaim.
